Re: [PLUG] Apple open sources kernel

Not to be an MSFT apologist, but since Nadella took over, they've had a radical shift on interoperability and open source I general. SQL Server now runs on Linux, Dot Net Core does as well, they're pushing heavily into containers in general and Docker in particular, all of their Azure Resource Manager templates are OSS on Github and, IIRC the PowerShell stuff on Linux (if not the whole thing) is now open source. 

I'm not advocating going out and buying WinServer Boxen, but it's a wholly different Microsoft from Ballmer's "Linux is a cancer" days.

It is based on open sources bits anyway so its only right.

I'm not a fan of the fruit company but I suspect more people would be interested in this compared to anything MS has/would open source.

Apple open sourced the OSX and iOS kernels. What the hell is going on here.
